New Mobile Specialist Surgery Service


Vet24 Balcatta is proud to have been part of the Perth Veterinary community for the past 40 years. Many vets are already utilizing our referral services. Our support and continual care are available to you, your clients and your patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We also want to be sure you remember - our senior veterinary staff can be contacted directly at any time to discuss a case or the best course of action for your clients or patients.


We are now extending on the service we offer our colleagues by offering the services of our specialist surgeon Dr. Ramesh Sivacolundhu BVMS MVS FANZCVS (Dr. “Ram” Siva). This will be an advantageous opportunity for your practice, to offer specialist surgery whilst securing the ongoing post-surgical care and follow up with your patient.

Ram has over 20 years of experience in referral surgery, including running an orthopaedic service at the Animal Medical Centre in New York (one of the largest veterinary hospitals in the world). He is the only specialist surgeon in Western Australia to have completed a Fellowship in Surgical Oncology (Colorado State University 2009), and is the Director of our comprehensive Surgery and Oncology Service.  Along with his many professional accomplishments, Ram is a kind, personable character with a passion for patient care and the highest professional standards. Ram has performed hundreds of plateau-levelling procedures (TWO, TTO, TPLO) on dogs. His preferred method is the TPLO and he is happy to talk to you about the differences between these techniques, success rates and complications.

So what's on offer for your practice? 

Ram and his team are offering a mobile service to your clinic for treatment of cranial cruciate ligament surgeries. Both TPLO and isotoggle surgeries are available; with a TPLO being the preferred option in most cases. With the size of the implants available (2.0, 2.7, 3.5 and 4.5 mm), locking plates and screw technology in those sizes, a TPLO can usually be performed on animals from 6 to 8 kg body weight to giant breeds.

Ram’s mobile service will be available for surgeries Tuesday mornings and consultations Tuesday afternoons by appointment. He is available to discuss cases with you from Monday-Wednesday at Vet24 Balcatta.

Please contact Amanda (RVN) at Vet24 to arrange an appointment either via email (preferred)  - 7 days a week or at the hospital on 9345-4644 Monday-Wednesday. We look forward to assisting you in providing quality care for your patients and clients.
